Dear friends, family, and blog reader,
I’m wondering if my extended support network can help put their thinking caps on for me. As a refresher, this year I volunteer for this wonderful organization, Hands of Hope, which offers dignified employment for people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. We make paper crafts made with ‘saa’ paper, sustainably made from the mulberry tree here in Thailand.
We currently have markets in Australia, the United States, Canada, Europe, as well as in Thailand. Previous volunteers and I regularly reach out to different organizations, like zoos, aquariums, museums, fair-trade or ethical organizations, arboretums, and ethical children’s gift shops – in the hopes of adding to our existing business.
I’m wondering if you know of any organizations that might be interested in our products. Perhaps you want to buy some yourself for a special event or for your employees? We work with our partners to create custom orders with increasing frequency, incorporating logos or themes from the specific organization. Or perhaps you know someone that works at a zoo, museum or ethical gift shop, who could direct our email to a more definitive person, besides the general email which is usually in the format of: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to buy products yourself, please scan the online order store. Our website features some of our products, but definitely not all (we are working at updating it in the coming months to showcase our newest products as well).
If you can help me with finding a new wholesale partner, please look at our wholesale catalog (for orders of 10,000 baht or approximately $300 USD or more). Our wholesale catalogue is much more comprehensive: http://www.handsofhopenongkhai.com/#!wholesale-/c5fm.
If you don’t know anyone at this time but want to stay connected with Hands of Hope, feel free to sign up for the monthly blog newsletter. Go to our website, scroll down, and submit your information to subscribe to our mailing list. You will need to click on the link in a confirmation email, for it to become official:
Many thanks for all that you do to support me, John, and Good Shepherd Volunteers already. We are grateful for a community as supportive as you have been!
Much love~ Susan
P.S. If you want to make an order yourself, please keep in mind that the typical shipping time is 3-4 weeks, and if you are ordering wholesale, we will need time to make the products as well.
